Sunday begins the "Mini Lent" of Advent

Watch and pray. He is coming. He is coming not only on Christmas, hidden under the form of a marginal Jewish baby, born to a peasant girl and construction worker in the back of a motel. He is coming again, and, as one writer once put it, He will invade! Maranatha! Come, King Jesus!

Today we celebrated the Enthronement of the Sacred Heart in our home. One part of the private liturgy by the Men of the Sacred Hearts struck me, which reads:
"This action of Enthroning the Sacred Heart has an impact on families and individuals that carries over to society and becomes the basis for spreading the Social Reign of our King and Savior."
Precisely. This is how it's done, painstakingly, brick by brick, heart by heart, community by community. No other way.

Sack cloth and ashes would be appropriate.

So would fasting and abstinence.

Why doesn't some Traditionalist begin producing a Bumper Sticker that reads Keep Christ and The Mass in Christmas (Christmesse)
